Today, we finally cycled from Passau to Linz. We planned it for a long time, but every time something has cropped up. Elli and I took the train REX 1728 at 07:12am from Linz to Passau. We arrived back in Linz at about 6pm. The tour was about 100km. Cycling time was about 5 hours – we did a lot breaks for lunch, ice-cream and cake. It was a nice trip! Here are the pictures!
Last Saturday we (nearly) cycled around Lake Neusiedl. We took the train from Vienna South Train Station to Neusiedl am See, where we started our bike tour. In Illmitz we had a break for lunch. Afterwards we took the ferry to Mörbisch am See. Unfortunately, it started to rain heavily. So we stopped cycling already in Purbach and took the train for the last kilometers.
This was our tour: Neusiedl am See -> Weiden am See -> Podersdorf am See -> Illmitz -> Mörbisch am See (by ferry) -> Rust -> Oggau am Neusiedlersee -> Donnerskirchen -> Purbach am Neusiedlersee -> Neusiedl am See (by train)
Since Mario had the excellent idea of biking up to Giselawarte, we started the tour today at 10am. We met at the ESH dorm. As we are not professional athletes, it took us about one and a half hours to reach the peak. After enjoying the great view, we had lunch in the tavern. And proper Austrian dessert, coffee and cake. Going downhill was quite effortless – we did it in about 25 minutes. The trip was great – enjoy the pictures!
